Hubert Sagnières MBA'86J
Vice-Chairman @EssilorLuxottica
In 2010, and after two decades in the Group across various senior leadership roles, Hubert Sagnières MBA'86J was named CEO of Essilor, the world’s leading ophthalmic optics company that designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of lenses to improve and protect eyesight. Following the combination with Luxottica in October 2018, he is today the Vice-Chairman of EssilorLuxottica. Hubert has been the driving force behind the transformation of Essilor’s business model in recent years, focusing on the Group's single mission of “improving lives by improving sight”. Under Hubert’s leadership, a dedicated Mission Division was created at Essilor in 2012 to accelerate the Group’s initiatives, raise awareness of the importance of good vision, and provide eyeglasses to the 2.7 billion people living with uncorrected poor vision. A man of action and commitment, Hubert Sagnières’ sights are set on the ambitious, inspiring goal of eliminating poor vision across the world by 2050.
